2014 Timetable front cover

There was a time when every little boy wanted to be an engine driver. Now grown up boys - and girls - can do just that and experience the power and majesty of steam through the experiences offered on the Kent & East Sussex Railway.

RXD 2013What a fantastic present to give someone for a special occasion, or maybe it's just an opportunity for you to indulge in a childhood dream!

Whether you are buying for yourself and have a date in mind or you are stuck for a unique and memorable gift idea, look no further.....

Gift Vouchers are available all year round for all the Railway Experiences that follow - just choose one that suits your budget and book online or call the Sales Office on 01580 765155 for immediate dispatch.

Below you'll find a range of experiences that we have developed over time and we would like to think we've covered most activities. If when you read through them you think there's an experience missing or you can think of an activity you would like either individually or as part of a group them please get in touch and we can discuss the possibilities.
